Sultan Kosen, the world's tallest man, has finally stopped growing, after he was treated at a US hospital to control the production of growth hormone
The 29-year-old at 8ft 3 inches measures in Guinness World Records as the tallest living man.
Kosen from Turkey received treatment at the University of Virginia Medical Center in May 2010 for treatment for a disorder called acromegaly, which is usually caused by a tumour in the pituitary gland.
Special equipment was flown in from Sweden to fit Kosen's larger skull, according to doctors.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, he was placed on a new medication that could potentially help control the production of growth hormone and stop his continued growth.
University officials now claim that Kosen has stopped growing.
The treatment will be noted in Guinness World Records.
"He's done very, very well, fortunately," the Telegraph quoted Dr Jason Sheehan, a University of Virginia Brain surgeon, as saying.
